The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the Federal Government’s Tradermoni initiative as “Agbo jedi” empowerment.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had this week rolled off the empowerment scheme in Osun State, South West Nigeria.
However, spokesman of the PDP Kola Ologbondiyan described Osinbajo’s act as a “shame.”
“It’s a shame that a pastor and a professor of law, VP @ProfOsinbajo will stoop this low to encourage the 10k “agbo jedi” empowerment in Osun,” he tweeted.
“Aregbe has made life so pitiable for Osun citizens.”
The Tradermoni initiative in Osun led to the empowerment of 30,000 traders across the state.
It is an initiative of the Federal Government with the Bank of Industry for petty traders in the country where each trader will get N10,000 to boost their businesses.
“Agbo Jedi” is a local herbal preparation made from a combination of water extracts of leaves, bark, roots and other chemicals.
Dominantly used in South Western Nigeria, it is believed to cure back pain and erectile dysfunction among others.
